Forget Buying A Cruise To The Galapagos! Buy An Adventure Package Instead…

No need to buy a cruise in the Galapagos when you can do most of the activities. Most cruises tend to be even more expensive than a custom fishing or adventure package. Cruise ships have contributed for many years to politicians and influenced the laws and regulations in the Galapagos to their own advantage while hurting the locals. The ships herd tourist like cattle and do not allow much freedom and relaxation.

Booking a custom package to the Galapagos will allow you to sleep in a nice hotel instead of a boat and do the touring and exploring at your own pace. The cruise ships waste a lot of time navigating to farther Islands to justify showing and endemic or rare bird that supposedly only live on that island. Truth be know, most of the animals and birds can be seen by visiting 2 or 3 of the main islands, all of which we offer custom island hopping packages for.
